Star Richmond spearhead Jack Riewoldt is the only player across the entire AFL competition to have scored multiple goals in his past 10 games this season.

Riewoldt’s multiple-goal streak started in Round 4 against Brisbane at the Gabba, when he kicked four goals. He then followed up with six against Melbourne in Round 5, two v Adelaide, Round 6, four v Western Bulldogs, Round 7, three v Fremantle, Round 8, two v GWS, Round 9, two v Essendon, Round 10, two v North Melbourne, Round 11, two v Sydney, Round 13, and three v Carlton in last Sunday’s Round 14 encounter.

All-up, the 28-year-old has played 215 games and kicked 517 goals in an illustrious, decade-long AFL career with Richmond.

This season, he has booted 34 goals, which places him in equal fifth place in the competition’s Coleman Medal leading goalkicker race, just five behind the leader, Jeremy Cameron (GWS).

He is a dual Coleman Medal winner (2010, 2012), a Jack Dyer Medallist (2010), two-time All-Australian representative (2010, 2015) and a seven-time winner of the Michael Roach Medal, as Richmond’s leading goalkicker in a season (2010-16).
